Learn about the Texas State Park system, home to more than 90 parks, historic sites, and natural areas across Texas. While parks are best known for camping and hiking they also have a variety of activities and programs, you may not know about: night sky programs, cooking demonstrations, learn-to-camp workshops, free fishing, cabins, lodges, and much more! We’ll focus on the parks in the wider San Antonio area as well as destination parks from across the state and a few “best kept secrets”. Learn about special events, reservation and visitation tips, and partnership opportunities.
Thomas Wilhelm will be giving a presentaion (marketing and branding manager for the Texas State Park system) and sharing his 10 years’ of experience with the park system. He has been to almost every site in the system and was named the 2016 Rising Star of Texas Tourism by the Texas Travel industry Association.
